Goodbye Jack

I'm having such bad luck with fish this week. Sorry you had to go so soon Jack :(. I don't know why you died but I'm determined to find out.

WHAT?!?!?! Uggg I'm so sorry!!!! *insert uber sadface here*


Did he look any different? Scales changing color, any white stuff hanging off him when he was alive? Poop look normal? Temp steady? White spots on his scales? Gold dust on him???

I'm really sorry amzingaly!

thanks :( petsmart is gonna get a piece of my mind :/. I don't know if you saw my thread about his twitching, but that appeared the only thing wrong with him. His appearance was fine, temp was stable, ammonia, nitrate and nitrite were all 0, poop was normal. I don't know what happened :/

No I didn't see it!

Twitching is usually kind of normal for Betta's and how they swim. But if he was flashing, aka rubbing against decor/walls/anything then he could have had internal parasites although weird that his poop would be normal and not yellow/white colored but they just might not have been coming out yet is all.

So are you able to take him back to exchange for a new boy?

It wasn't like he was rubbing himself against anything. It actually looked like he was having a seizure or something but it went on for hours until he passed away. I posted a short video of it in the diseases and emergencies section. I'm going to go get a new fish from petco in a few days because I'm fed up with petsmart right now but they will hear about this.
